    Shooting at another Navy Base, this time Pensacola Naval Air Station.

    Another murderer uses a "Gun Free Zone" to commit murder with a gun. Student Aviator that committed this crime was a Saudi National on station for flight training.

    Scant on details so far, and the traffic in that part of town is just now getting sorted out (about 3PM). All the reporting so far has featured officials that basically repeat the same stuff over and over:

    1. Shooter was a Saudi AF 2nd LT, here for flight training.
    2. Escambia County Sheriff's Office personnel were called in and dispatched the shooter.
    3. Two Deputies injured in the fight, one shot in the arm, the other in the knee. 2nd one underwent surgery.
    4. At least two other persons were killed, no ID until families notified +24hrs. Last report was 4 additional persons injured.
    5. Everything in the area went into lockdown, not that it mattered much. Only one road in and it had traffic gridlocked for miles until just recently.
    6. Corry Station (another Navy base) appx. 3 miles north also went into lockdown.

    No one who knows anything is saying anything to the media. I'm sure with a county agency and two federal agencies involved, we might as well wait months for the report.

    One positive in the whole thing is that the local blood banks are nearing capacity since virtually all the flight students and a large number of the aviation field students lined up to donate blood to the Deputies and other victims.

    Question I most want to know: WTF did Mr. Saudi AF student get a handgun?

    Making military bases to which foreign nationals have access into gun free zones is completely nonsensical. Our military folks should be able to defend themselves.

    How is THAT a mystery??? Seriously. It's like pondering how ANY criminal acquires a gun. Yeah... we know the answer to that, eh?

    Gosh... how do people get illegal drugs??

    Next, people will be demanding to waste time and resources to determine "WHY he did it."

    Why do they call him a "shooter" (on the news right now)? They don't call a murderer who uses a knife a "stabber" or "cutter."

    He's a murderer... a mass murderer.

    I'm a shooter. I'm even an "active shooter." I'll be actively shooting tomorrow and Sunday, and again next Saturday. My daughter is a shooter, too. A damned good one!

    Easy, He bought it at a gun show because of the "LOOPHOLE"
    He is just one of those very crazy Muslim pieces of garbage that hates America but don't mind coming over to kill Infidels.
    These enemies of America are all over this country and will all pop up about the same time someday in the future.

    Ronnie, the demographics of the murderer haven't been released other than he was a Saudi National, but it is a safe bet that as a Student Aviator from Saudi Arabia, all of whom are sanctioned by the Saudi Royal family, that he was a practicing Muslim. However, I'm not sure your comments are appropriate. Do you believe he a "piece of garbage" because he's "Muslim," because he's "crazy," or because he committed murder?
